Naomi Ferrett-Cohen is a Sussex based planting and garden designer, whose life-long love of the outdoors and gardening inspires her creativity. In 2018 Naomi won a Silver-Gilt medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show for the design of the A Life Without Walls garden and she regularly contributes towards other show gardens around the UK.
From first sight to project completion, Naomi is a garden designer who loves the process of transforming her clients’ spaces, breathing life into them and creating gardens to be enjoyed and to be proud of.
Based in Shoreham, at the foot of the beautiful South Downs, Naomi will be delighted to help with a town, country or coastal garden, large or small, in Sussex or further afield.
We asked Naomi to give us ideas for our north facing back garden just south of the South Downs. We were included from the outset and felt very involved in the final planting plan. Naomi arranged for the original garden to be ‘taken away’ and for the delivery of soil, mulch, plants and trees. She supervised the planting and gave advice about watering and aftercare. Nearly 3 years later we are really pleased that the garden continues to flourish and surprise us as the plants mature. More...
I have worked with Naomi on a number of my projects across Sussex and she always delivers a perfect package. She has completed multiple plant designs for me over the last two years and they are always to a high standard.
Naomi, what can we say? We hit a wall with regards to using our small garden space effectively. Naomi supported us in developing our vision, scattering her seeds of wisdom we came up with a plan. Naomi measured out the space, suggested colours, designs, plants and we began. The journey is not yet complete but the 5 stars are due to the knowing that the plan is taking shape, spring planting to go! We are very excited as a family as we have gained an extra room! Al Fresco! More...
Naomi was excellent in her approach and presentation. She worked with us to understand what we needed and how best to achieve it, even within a limited budget. She was happy to allow freedom and flexibility enabling us to develop ideas with helpful input and suggestions. Work is about to start... More...
Naomi has completely transformed our garden from a large lawned area to a beautifully bordered landscaped space. Her thoughts on design and attention to what flowers, shrubs and trees suited our garden and it’s needs were very detailed. She has been very easy to work with and has taken on any changes we asked for and put them in her design. Throughout the major landscaping she checked with us that we were happy and took on board our comments. The work was carried out with minimum disruption and everything was kept tidy as the work continued. Since it was completed, Naomi has visited and worked further on adding more plants, mulching the soil and adapting things around the garden. She worked on a care plan for the garden for us, we are complete novices at gardening, and has helped to keep the garden looking beautiful. It really did look stunning in the Spring into Summer and still looks good in the Winter. More...
Naomi is an inspiring and thoughtful designer, and a delight to work with. Her design for our 2018 RHS Chelsea Flower Show garden won an amazing Silver Gilt medal and presented an amazing message about stigma for those living with HIV.
Naomi has been great to work with, she is very professional and her calm and approachable nature makes her easy to work alongside.
